True, it's not a huge surprise, but a pleasant one, and proof that their sales must not be doing too badly if they keep issuing these box sets on schedule. Heck, maybe they sell better than the Road Trips/Dick's Picks stuff?

That was my thought about the EuroBox. Maybe it actually sold better than the single releases. It was equal to about 23-24 single RT releases in both disc number and cost and we know they sold at least 7200 of them. We know in the pre-Rhino days the sold out 10000 of the Fillmore '69 box. Yet they could not sell 12000 Dave's Picks Subscriptions. Does size actually matter to deadheads?

Its not size you see, with those complete releases, no one decided which of these shows were "appropriate", they released them all - boogers, scabs and all. That is the way to go.

I'd buy a Greek Theater box set in a NYC second.
